Get ready to say “you’re fired . . . y’all!”

Country singers Luke Bryan and Emily West are set to appear in an episode of the new season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.

The two will take part in a Nashville-themed challenge that will have the celebrity teams trying to figure out what it takes to make a country music superstar.

West says she was thrilled to participate in the show, which this season features celebrity contestants like Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne, Bret Michaels and former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

“Reality is so much more fun when it happens with a lot of really famous ,” says West. “Although being on set with four camera crews in your face is quite different from being a viewer perched in my comfy couch!”

Bryan admits he was a bit nervous as well. “It was a little intimidating at first with so much happening around us so fast but I just tried to have fun with it all,” says the singer. “I’m hoping that I do Nashville, country music and myself proud. I can’t wait to see how it turns out on TV.”

The new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres Sunday (9 p.m. EST) on NBC.
